answer to the washington gridlock? and is he planning a run for governor against chris christie. for analysis, we'll turn to joe klein of "time" magazine. "washington post" columnist michael gerson, and our own norah o'donnell and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent. it's all ahead on "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: good morning, again. well, to the famous combos of modern life, from mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, rum and coke, bread and butter, and salt and pe pepper, add one more pair simpson-bowles. alan simpson may be in wyomingy and erskine bowles in north carolina but you can't mention one without think of the other. when you headed up the bipartisan deficit commission appointed by the president you laid out the dire consequences if we don't get the country back on a sound financial footing. the two sides are still at loggerheads. i guess i would start this morning by mr.-- and mr. bowles, why don't you go first-- is all this just posture or are they rea
. christmas break is already over for president obama. he's flying back to washington tonight and aides say he's ready for a deal. it's not clear whether this trip is a sign of compromises to come or another display of theater showing the president is willing to work even as his opponents skip town. meanwhile, though, americans are growing skeptical. in the last week alone, gallup found a 15-point drop in the number of americans who think congress will negotiate a deal on the fiscal cliff. that's not all, holiday spending also hit its lowest rate since the 2008 recession, which retailers are blaming on the uncertainty in washington. so where do we go from here? well, since the house failed to get a vote on the tax package last week, all eyes are on the senate. a temporary deal that would basically extend all the tax cuts for those making under a quarter million. the deal would also rescue long-term unemployment benefits and instead of addressing those automatic spending cuts we've all heard about that are set for january 1st, this temporary deal would delay them for another six months. few are
have big news out of washington, where nothing is happening. the house is not in session, and as of this moment has no plans to be in session for the end of the year. nothing is stirring, not even harry reid. yes, i'm still in the christmas spirit. the president meanwhile is in hawaii and won't be returning until tomorrow. now, normally nothing happening would not be big news in washington. nothing happening is kind of the status quo in washington. getting nothing done is to our political system as saying great is to tony the tiger. it's just kind of what we do now. right now, this week, nothing happening is huge news. the reason is that usually when washington doesn't do anything nothing happens. you do nothing, nothing happens. that's how it goes. in fact that's why people call it doing nothing. after you do it, nothing occurs. if washington doesn't do something, a lot happens. all the bush tax cuts expire, the payroll tax cuts expire. doctors participating in medicare, see their reimbursements cut by more than 25%. good luck getting a doctor then. more than a trillion
lunch." we have three major news conferences in washington, d.c. president obama will nominate senator john kerry to be his next secretary of state. harry reid will be on the senate floor and house minority leader nancy pelosi will discuss the cliff crisis. with plan b history, washington is scrambling to get a deal done. the markets however are decidedly worried. dow jones has been down triple digits almost all session. we are off our worst lefs, down about 174 point a few moments ago. down 152 on the dow. 17 to the minus side and nasdaq is off almost 40. let's go to washington where john har wood is standing by with the latest on the fiscal cliff follies. john? >> all follies so far, sue. we had house speaker john boehner come out today and have a news conference explaining the failure of his plan b last night which stunned a lot of people because both boehner and eric cantor majority leader said they were confident they had the most to pass it. what he said today at a news conference is that there were members who had a perception which he said was incorrect. it would raise taxes. t
fire from political opponents in washington today said enough. susan rice, the ambassador to the u.n., so embattled over the tragedy in benghazi, said she will not go through a bruising nomination fight to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. so, what happened behind closed doors? why now? and whom will the president pick to represent america on the world stage? abc's senior white house correspondent jake tapper has all the details right now. jake? >> reporter: good evening, diane. well, ambassador susan rice withdrew her name from consideration to be secretary of state after weeks of bruising political battles and a cacophony of criticism. in a letter to the president today, u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice wrote, "the position of secretary of state should never be politicized. i am saddened that we have reached this point even before you have decided whom to nominate." and she shared the news on nbc. >> i didn't want to see a confirmation process that was very prolonged, very politicized, very distracting and very disruptive, because there are so many th

been posted by the "washington post" for tomorrow, and saying that it had become a distraction, that she wants to focus on her work and that clearly was not possible the way this had proceeded. i think that no one asked her to withdraw but they were unable, since she had not been nominated and the president was still obviously ambivalent between her and john kerry at this stage, they did not surround her with the kind of support she would have had if she had been a nominee. i think it's very clear from our reporting and from chuck todd's reporting that some of the top advisers in the white house, they were divided also, but some of the top advisers said to the president you do not need this political battle right now with the republican senate because this would stretch the benghazi investigation forever and it would mean that the confirmation hearing would be very difficult. they probably could have won it. but that it would be a distraction from the main act, which is to move on, create a cabinet, have a national security team and focus on the tax and spending debate, which i
: chris joining us from philadelphia, democrats' line with representative rick larsen from washington state. caller: thank you, c-span, for what you provide the american people. i find this whole situation ironic. the fiscal cliff scares me personally -- and i think president obama certainly has shown his willingness to compromise whereas the republicans and tea party do not seem to want to do so. this ideology they are sticking to will ruin our economy and i find it hypocritical because their chief criticism of the president during the presidential campaign was his mismanagement of our economy and they are willing to mismanage our economy down the drain on some principal. it does not seem they care about the american people. they care about the part of the american people, the rich, that is what seems like to me and i am sick of it. i used to be republican and i switched party about, i guess eight or 10 years ago. which has something to do with philadelphia politics as well because you cannot have much say in philadelphia politics unless you are democrat but that is beside the point.
